This morning I was inspired to bring my pinhole camera to work to re-shoot my “library ghost” photo. The original didn’t come out exactly as I wanted. Plus, now I’m walking around with a cane. I have props! So I dressed myself in black, found a lace poncho thing in my office that I thought might add to the drama, and set up my pinhole camera.
I exposed the shutter, and stood in front of the camera for 1 minute 30 seconds.
As I stood there, posing in the aisle, I heard some whispering in the next aisle. I assumed that it was our volunteer, searching for books and whispering to herself. I thought to myself, “please, please, please, don’t wander over here while I’m doing this.” I didn’t want to have to explain what I was doing.
Thankfully, the very long minute and a half ended and I wandered around the stacks with my camera to see if I could find the volunteer, to see where she was.
THERE WAS NOBODY THERE.
I either heard the whispering in my head or it was the library ghost.
